    Beko CA5411FFW2 Tapping Noise

    Hi JJ The noise stops when the compressor stops. I opened up the back panel in the freezer where the fan is and there are no obstructions/blockages behind there. I disconnected the freezer fan but the noise continues - it is audible up the back of the unit, probably halfway up the back of the...

    Beko CA5411FFW2 Tapping Noise

    Hello all Odd issue with our Beko fridge/freezer - it's started to make a tapping sound, coming from the back of the unit. I have checked and the sound is not coming from the compressor area, rather the area above it with the black radiator grille. See video attached below for the noise...

    Spurting / Air in hot water

    Hi oil boffin, have tried your suggestion to no avail. I left the tap running for a good 15 mins but still could hear the air bubbles! Any other ideas on what this could be? I hope it isn't the tap!

    Spurting / Air in hot water

    Hello everyone I have a rather odd issue in our kitchen tap ... when I turn it on full whack hot (which is what I usually do for washing up), a few seconds later, I can hear the sound of air bubbles within the tap, and the flow is interrupted and the tap spurts slightly. The flow then goes back...

    LEC EL755AW Thermostat - K59-L6057

    Hi guys Our larder fridge, a LEC EL755AW seems to have developed a thermostat problem. I've taken it apart and removed the thermostat, and it's marked as a RANCO K59 L6057. I can't find any replacements for it around on the web - it has four pins, two of which are earth pins, and most of the...

    Replacing Loft Insulation

    Thanks for your reply John. I was advised by someone at a local plumbers merchant to make a sort of "skirt" around the frame using a couple of black insulation jackets for the water tank. Would this do the job if I went all the way round and taped the gaps, and where it touches the floor, I can...

    Replacing Loft Insulation

    Very grateful for your advice Doggit - just to clarify, should I insulate the floor as normal under the water tank (between joists and across the top), and in addition hang some rockwool below the water tank on some netting, up against the wood in the picture? Cheers for your help!

    Replacing Loft Insulation

    Hi guys, apologies this is a repeated thread from the Roofing section = posted there by mistake. @Mods, please remove this thread from the roofing section. We've just bought a house and found that the loft doesn't have any insulation in it! I've ordered some rolls of 100mm and 200mm...

    Pyronix Enforcer - Siren Tamper

    Thanks for your suggestions on the switch guys, I've been up this morning and took the whole module out. The microswitch looks like the one below. I've put a multimeter on it, and open it reads open as expected, closed the resistance fluctuates between 0.5 and 0.6 ohms. Sparky do you think this...

    Pyronix Enforcer - Siren Tamper

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I've checked the panel and the signal is 100 over 5 minutes, and didn't budge from there. Looking at the bell box, there's a battery block top left and a switch below it, sitting in front of a plastic pin which protrudes forwards towards the cover. I've double checked...

    Side hung windows - noise

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions - I've sprayed with silicone lubricant (WD40 actually make one, which I didn't realise!), and Gaz, I've whacked some vaseline onto the tabs, so let's see how it goes. A couple of the windows are now behaving, but the others do still appear to be misaligning...

    Pyronix Enforcer - Siren Tamper

    Hi all I have a Pyronix enforcer v9.5 panel that I have installed myself. Recently we moved house and the panel/detectors/bell came with us. I re-installed it at the new house back in June and all was well, arming/disarming and communicating by SMS when triggering/tampering as normal. The...
